President Cyril Ramaphosa has applauded citizens who have lent a helping hand in the clean-up campaigns taking place across KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

Ramaphosa has encouraged South Africans to use Mandela Day to provide food to the most vulnerable in society, to join clean-up drives, and to start the task of rebuilding.

This comes in the wake of violent unrest that gripped the country in the past week.

On Friday, the president the violence was a deliberate, coordinated, and well-planned attack on South Africa's democracy.

He labelled the events of the past week as "economic sabotage" and a failed attempt proviking a popular insurrection.
